Beach Lawns Care Home

A Weston care home which looks after 80 people has been rated as good by the Care Quality Commission (CQC), which praised its ‘kind and caring’ staff.

The CQC has just published its inspection report for Beach Lawns Residential and Nursing Home, in Beach Road, which rates it as good in all areas.

It means the service is safe, effective, caring, responsive and well-led.

The home specialises in caring for older people. It has a dedicated unit called Memory Lane which looks after people who have dementia and a suite called Sandford which is for people who require nursing care.

The home had increased the number of staff it has on duty since a previous CQC inspection, in August 2015, and the watchdog praised these changes.

The CQC report adds people felt safe in the home and staff had a good knowledge of people’s care needs.

It adds: “People and their relatives thought the staff were kind and caring and we observed positive interactions.”

The home’s manager Lyn Taylor said: “I am so proud of my team and our wonderful residents, who we have the privilege of caring for each and every day.

“The lovely comments from our staff, residents and their loved ones in the report are really heart-warming to read and make me feel very honoured to be here.”

Sanctuary Care runs the home, and its director of care operations Stephen Rees said: “We are incredibly proud of Lyn and her team – and the lovely comments are testament to the wonderful care they deliver. They have made us all very proud.”
